Securing Equity Finance: Preparation

Posted by privateequityinvestments on October 18, 2009 at 8:48 PM
Once you have decided to seek equity finance, you'll need a comprehensive business plan incorporating a detailed marketing plan and realistic financial projections. Consider the following issues:

how much funding you need and 
what exactly the funding is for 
how much control you're hoping to retain and 
the skills the business needs 
how long you need the funds for 

Any potential investor will be looking for a number of core issues in your business plan:

What are your funding needs? 
Are your plans for the business realistic? 
Is your venture appropriate for external investment? 

Your business plan should seek to address these issues, and you should tailor the information you provide according to the investor you're approaching. The plan should include a series of detailed financial forecasts, what you intend to do with the funding, how you'll repay the investor, your management's level of expertise and what the investor can expect in return.
